Setting my kids up, I got two kids a little boy and a little girl I would set up with college and things like that,” said Ryan Burridge.
“Lot of charities, especially with animals and children’s needs. Lots of hospitals I would give to, St. Jude’s and stuff like that,” said Francis Filchock. “You don’t win unless you play!”
